For Immediate Release

STILLWATER- The OSU Library and Stillwater Area United Way are celebrating “America’s Greatest Homecoming” by opening the rooftop of the Edmon Low on Friday, Oct. 18, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the “Rooftop Photo Op.”

For $5, visitors can capture a view of campus from the balconies of the library bell tower. There is only one day each year for students, alumni and fans to visit the rooftop for a chance to see this unique view of campus. The “Rooftop Photo Op” continues to serve as a popular event students and families visiting campus for the day of Walkaround.

“This is a rare opportunity that many students and alumni take advantage of each year,” said Misty Smith, associate professor/catalog librarian. “This view of campus makes for a great background, and guests enjoy taking pictures from this spot. The ‘Rooftop Photo Op’ is a fun occasion; many people even have this on their bucket list.”

The event is open to the public and costs $5 per person. All proceeds benefit the Stillwater Area United Way. Guests can meet their guide on the 5th floor of the Edmon Low Library. Groups will be escorted to the roof every 15 minutes.
